Windows 7: 10GB of space dissapeared

10GB of space dissapeared

I was going to make a virtual machine with VirtualBox, but at the last minute hesitated and removed the VM. But for some reason, the 10GB of space I gave it still hasn't been freed. I've uninstalled it and still nothing.
Any help?

You'' have to delete the Virtual Hard Disk file. Uninstalling VirtualBox doesn't remove those.

I removed the VM that I created, is that the same?
